Don't expect this to trouble-shoot problems
I turn to a book, especially one that should cover more than the basics and help when troubleshooting, but this one comes up short.
The first time I tried to use a Mac it was Word 3.02 and I bought a book (Cobb Group) that covered the Mac OS, hardware, extensions, everything. Mac Internet Starter kit helped when I needed to go online and do email and use Mozaic and Anarchy, Gofer, etc.
This is "Office 101" to walk you through doing simple tasks. Not trouble-shooting Office, exchanging with Windows users, or error codes, crashes, upgrades, patches, or links to places on the web.
If someone is slightly familiar with earlier versions, there are best off with a short "What's New, Quickstart Guide." If your Entourage won't sync with a PDA, or your message database needs a complex rebuild, the things I look for in a tomb of this size, well, it seemed to come up short.

Editorial Reviewer Was Drunk
As a co-author of this book, I want to state up-front that the Editorial Reviewer either never looked at the book or was intoxicated while writing.
We cover the Macintosh version of Microsoft Office and it does NOT include Access, Publisher, or Outlook. It does include Microsoft Entourage (falls somewhere between Outlook Express and Outlook in functionality).
I'm biased, but I think the book does a very good job in the space available of covering Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Entourage (it even has an overview of Internet Explorer).
